Elegant custom design folder for London Base

custom design folder

We’ve recently completed work on the first phase of a new project for our long-time property management client London Base.

The team had a requirement for an imaginative solution to how to present the detailed information that comes with each apartment. This could be from the mundane such as wifi passwords or how to operate an air conditioning unit to something a little more trip-enhancing such as cultural information about the neighbourhood.

Having worked on a series of menu design projects recently we had seen some prototypes of the sort of custom design folders that many luxury hotels use. These are leather-bound, hard-wearing and still very beautiful. With this in mind, we pitched the idea of this sort of folder to the London Base team.

Hat trick! Three nominations for the Solutions Awards 2017!

Solutions Awards 2017

I am incredibly proud to say that we have been nominated in a fantastic THREE categories for our work this past year in the print industry’s Solutions Awards 2017 – which come up in November.

The nominations are for two major projects – the Shine Winners Book which we completed back in June and the Scarfes Bar menu for Rosewood London which was introduced back in the Spring after several months work.

I am going to write in more depth about on our work for Shine – particularly from a paper specification and environmental perspective – next week, but this post focusses on a new introduction to our work for Scarfes Bar which hopefully gives some interesting in-depth background about the design process we went through.

New luxury hotel print design – The Mirror Room

luxury hotel print design

At the outset of our work for Rosewood London, back in January, one of the key projects we were asked to complete was a redesign of the menus for The Mirror Room, their restaurant and afternoon tea space. A great piece of luxury hotel print design, this new menu is cool and elegant – while being practical for everyday use at a busy hotel where things change quickly.

Our previous work for Rosewood focussed on a custom, raspberry leather-covered menu for Scarfes Bar. We loved the opulence of that project and the unexpected illustrations within. But this project for The Mirror Room is rather different, representing a new sort of challenge – and perhaps another design approach.

New luxury hotel design work for Rosewood London

luxury hotel design

Over the past three months we’ve been working alongside the communications team at Rosewood London, the luxury hotel in the heart of London’s Holborn.

Our work has focussed on the design of a menu system for their elegant cocktail bar and ‘club room’, Scarfes Bar. This week the first part of this work has appeared within and outside the Bar and I’ve been along to photograph the menus in situ.

It’s been a while since we had new luxury hotel design work on our portfolio and it’s a real pleasure to see this project completed.
